The Downside of Critiques

There is a downside to receiving critiques from multiple writers/readers. For example, ten people will have ten different opinions on grammar and views of the story which, although helpful to catch minor issues, also adds discouraging doubts into the mix.

I end up revising the story and characters so much I hear my main character screaming, “Leave me alone.” Which is exactly what the real Mary, a non conformist, would have said. So, I’m restoring LIFE to my original scenes and taking my voice back.
